As school starts here for another year, I'm slightly worried about how Wee Z will cope with having to sit in the classroom again. I don't worry about how he'll do with his work, but it must be tough on them after 7 weeks off school, free to do what they please (within reason) to have to sit back in a classroom and focus on learning. Before the kids started school and nursery, we used to do things to help them learn. Activities that helped them to learn their colours or numbers or letters. I didn't see any reason not to carry this on through the Summer holidays. Wee Z chose some workbooks from the book shop and would happily sit and do these for an hour during the day.
